For me, it's rare. Especially if hardly anybody is around. Rolling stop, baby!

Depends on who else is at the intersection.
Intersections are made to safely allow traffic to cross paths or change paths. If traffic can cross safely and one car doesn't come to a complete stop, it doesn't matter.

Most automatic trannies don't want to comply with a complete stop, when the drivers eyes scan directions for other traffic, that terrible thought sent from the now newer electric A..tranny relates >> Release the brake pressure and hurry on to go threw the intersection. Why? Well you the Driver is in charge of the Brake pedal whether there is any traffic or not.

The Stop sign has no electronic radiation to bother you with, it just uses respect, fear, silence, maybe integrity about 35.5%. Depends on location/ Driver's decision making, "Un Huh"! Seems So! Fuel/time related. TJMe....

Can't remember if I've ever done so.. We live in Kalifornia, and hence the term California Stop
